Secured vs unsecured loans!
You can borrow against your own savings or certificate as collateral for a share secured loan. Rather than liquidating your account and forfeiting all dividends and an emergency safety net, you borrow against that amount while keeping your money in the account.
The amount you want to borrow will be put on hold by Coastal. If your loan application is accepted, you will receive the requested amount in the form of a check or a deposit into your share account. Payments on the loan can be made through an automatic withdrawal from your account, direct deposit, or a monthly check.
Borrowers with bad or no credit, who may not be able to get a loan otherwise, stand to benefit the most from these loans. This is an excellent way to create or rebuild credit.
